My cousin hit my cat with a wooden stick and my dad wants me to apologize to my uncle (my cousin’s dad) for being disrespectful.

I’m 23 years old. I didn’t really curse at him lol I just told him that he needs to watch over his kid instead of watching tv if he decides to bring him over and he told me I was being disrespectful. I told him, “I don’t care. Your son hit my car and I don’t want your son near my cat again.”

Well my uncle is being difficult and he’s trying to make me apologize to him and his son for “being rude to guests” and shit. I don’t think I did anything wrong and my dad keeps telling me “it’s an accident. He’s just a kid, he doesn’t know any better” and I should be the bigger person and apologized.

Either way, I think I’m gonna start keeping my cat in my room whenever they come over. Thanks for the advice!
